What do you think makes Rotaract unique?
“Rotaract is unique because it has so much going on that there is something for everyone, and thus it can bring together people of so many different backgrounds, different interests, and different majors. Yet we all share one thing in common: our passion for community service and our dedication to living with the ideology of “service above self”.
As an EECS major, I feel that without having Rotaract, I might’ve stayed in Berkeley’s CS bubble and not really had as much of a chance to interact with the broader Berkeley community. I decided to join Rotaract partially because I was tired of all the CS clubs that I had tried out my first semester of college and wanted to try something new… something that definitely was not technical… but somewhere where I could feel like I could still make an impact
and work towards making the world a better place. Rotaract was able to give me that opportunity, to be able to work for local initiatives like homeless shelters and city clean-up, think about international issues like polio and the Syrian Refugee crisis, influence the lives of high schoolers (Kevin!), and learn about how otherwises take service into their adult lives.
As we all end up finding out, the biggest impact of this organization on our lives is the friendships and experiences we gain from being part of the Rotaract community. I honestly would not have stayed if not for the wonderful, welcoming, and caring people that you find everywhere in Rotaract, and their clear dedication to making the world a better place, one Saturday morning 8am service event at a time.”
What is your music vibe?
“I’m not too big of a person on music, but most of the times I listen to pop and EDM. It’s kind of like I randomly search around for a good song or good album and then put it on repeat until I get bored of it. Then I let Spotify or Pandora or Youtube autoplay keep on running until I hear anything song or artist that I really like and then keep listening to that. Recently I’ve been listening to 3LAU’s Ultraviolet album, so yeah I guess I would like to go to a concert for that!”
